Newborn Nursery

The Newborn Nursery at Monroe Carell focuses on providing family-centered care to promote family and infant bonding. We care for healthy newborns and those with special medical needs. We can often provide additional services without transferring you to an intensive care unit. Our lactation consultants provide prenatal education and consultations to new mothers.
